  • Let’s have a parade and a pageant

    Finally we have the right attitude for the beginning of football season.  
    Anticipating the beginning of football is much like waiting for Christmas presents or your wedding day or in my case something to eat that doesn’t say “diet” this or that.  
    The opening of football is one of the best times of the year. No more waiting for the sound of the cheerleaders and the band. No more waiting for the whistle to start the kickoff.  The time is here.

    The very game that was his first love, was also his downfall.
    Blaine Henry was a Harrison County basketball star in the late 1960s. His prowess on the court landed him numerous honors, not the least of which was a starring role with the Milwaukee Bucks a few years after graduation.
    It was his love of the game that ultimately spelled his demise.
    “You celebrated every win with beer parties,” said a humbled Henry, now 62 and an avowed recovering alcoholic and drug addict.
